About Us

Aqua is the premier private swim and lifeguard service in the Los Angeles Westside area. We are also a full service surf school and stand up paddle school. 

For almost 20 years founder Rod Samper has been doing his thing in the pool and in the ocean. He combines experience, patience and intuition to provide a safe and effective learning environment in the water for your child.

Rod is supported by a first rate team of fabulous and fun instructors and lifeguards. We are dedicated to introducing your child in a gentle manner to the water and to setting your children up to look forward to a lifetime of safely and confidently enjoying a multitude of water activities.

The Aqua experience is a unique and personal one. Our swim lessons are designed around your child’s particular needs. No one else does events like our super fun pool and beach parties. Our surf and paddle lessons are thoughtfully planned out. Equipment and choice of surf spot are carefully selected with your best success in mind. Thanks! We look forward to seeing you in the water.
